    today's humming bird shoot.

    they can be quite hard to photograph, there quick and don't always seem to stay in one spot very long. here is a photo of a male that i really like but it was also in bad lightning with a 1/4000 shutter speed with my 200mm lens, it was cropped pretty heavily but still looks good if you can...

    today's humming bird shoot.

    great story about the hawks, my understanding is humming birds like to be close to hawks, the hawks don't eat thm since they are so small and the hawks scare off allot of the animals that will eat them. but they are territorial, we had a male hummer that would set in the tree in my yard...

    today's humming bird shoot.

    Thanks... These were shot in the front yard, the feeders right next to the door in the garage that goes outside. I propped the cameras up on the tripod inside the garage so they cant see me that easily and waited for them to show up. only saw one today in about 30 or 40 min I am guessing it...

    Photo sharpness, am I imagining things?

    I haven't read everything here. you may need a faster shutter speed, the lens may need tuned to get a better focus, some cameras have a focus fine tune, some sigma lenses can be hooked up to the sigma dock so you can really fine tune the focus, I own 3 sigma lenses that can be tuned with...

    Is the iPhone 7 camera the end of DSLRs?

    I saw some reviews of the new iphone camera and some photos taken with it that the reviewers were raving about, they photos did not look very good to me. the images looked kind of soft and the bokeh was not that great IMO and stuff like that. plus you have very little optical zoom...

    how to get crazy up close macro photos

    Thanks, those are some great photos you posted the rayonex does not fit on any of my lenses, there all 72-82mm filter sizes. i don't want to hold it up by hand in front of the lens. I can get a set of the cheap filters for 17 bucks that will fit on 2 of my lenses. the photos people have...

    how to get crazy up close macro photos

    The lowa looks awesome as far as image quality goes but it appears that you need to be very close to your subject with that lens. someone already mentioned that lens and i have done my research. tokina makes a AT-X 100 D 100mm f/2.8 pro II macro lens or something like that, its about the...

    how to get crazy up close macro photos

    and one more test on the 35mm lens, here is a photo with no tube and one with each tube. 35mm lens no extension tube about a foot away from the subject. 35mm lens with a 12mm extension tube about 2 inches away from the subject 35mm lens with a 20mm extension tube about 1 inch or less from...

    how to get crazy up close macro photos

    OK one more try with the 50-100, put 48mm of extension tube on since that is as close as i can get to 50mm with the tubes. set the lens to 50mm and put it at infinity fous and these are the results i got. maybe my extension tubes are not correctly marked as far as the mm of the tubes...

    how to get crazy up close macro photos

    alright let me try this again, stuck the 36mm ext tube on my 35mm lens. I set the focus to the infinity mark and tried to get focus on something, I started about a foot way and I slowly moved closer, right about the time it started to focus the lens bumped against the water bottle...

    Lens recommendation for "sports" or "action" shots

    if you can zoom in close enough with the lenses you now have you probably just need a faster shutter speed to stop the motion. sounds like you may just be getting motion blur. when photographing birds in flight I find I need at least a 1/1000 shutter speed or i often get a blurry subject or...
